Comments & ID Thoughts

Argiope aurantia. My first sighting! I tried to confirm that they are "palm-sized" and did better at confirming that they don't want to touch human skin. The silk strand she used to travel from her web looked and felt like lightweight fishing line monofilament. She was living next-to a golf course.
